EU want to break up UK

IN less than 100 days the people of Scotland will vote on their nation’s future in a referendum; either for independence or to stay as part of the United Kingdom.

This is as important to the rest of the UK as it is to Scotland. The Union of over 300 years has been a great success to all within it and has had a great impact on the rest of the world, making us unique and to their envy.

The Scots are being sold the deal on becoming an independent nation, but want to remain members of the EU. That is not independence, as they will be ruled by Brussels, not Edinburgh.

If they vote yes, it will start the break up of the UK, which is what the EU bureaucrats want.

Then we all become part of an integrated European State, with its federal government, its own flag and anthem.

The referendum we should be having is on our membership of the EU so that all of the UK can vote to regain our independence.

We can then once again make own way in the world and benefit by the opportunities that await us.
